RE: California

Thu, Jan 26, 2023 – Introduced by Assembly Member Addis, Assembly Bill 318, an act to repeal Section 18806 of the Health and Safety Code, relating to mobilehomes..

Existing law, the Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Act, establishes the Mobilehome Residency Law Protection Program within the Department of Housing and Community Development to resolve complaints from homeowners relating to the Mobilehome Residency Law. Under existing law, the act is repealed on January 1, 2024.

This bill would remove the January 1, 2024, repeal date and make the act operative indefinitely.

RE: Attleboro, Massachusetts / Hometown America

Wed, Jan 25, 2023 – A group of tenants at the Oakhill mobile home park have received compensation from a $1.26 million class action suit against the park’s owner.

Attleboro lawyer Peter Tekippe, who represented tenants, said Wednesday that all those involved in the lawsuit have received checks of various amounts depending on how much rent they paid.

The 144 tenants and Hometown America Communities Inc., the park’s owner, reached a settlement for $1,264,804 that was finalized by a Housing Court judge.

The lawsuit, filed in 2012, claimed that Hometown America overcharged rent to the tenants from October 2006 through January 2021.

The case went all the way to the state Supreme Judicial Court which ruled in the tenants’ favor in November 2020 and sent the case back to the Housing Court for settlement.

RE: Fresno, California / Shady Lakes Mobile Home Park / Harmony Communities

Tue, Jan 24, 2023 – Almost four years after suing a Stockton-based investment company, residents of a Fresno County mobile home park have experienced a near-100% increase in rent.

Many of the 60 families at Shady Lakes Mobile Home Park near Chestnut and Lincoln avenues have lived there for well over a decade, drawn by the lower cost of living. But it only took four years under ownership of Shady Lakes LLC and managed by Harmony Communities – both of which are owned by the same person – to undergo the triple-digit increase in rent.

Under terms of the lawsuit, residents would at most compel ownership to better maintain the property they acquired in 2019 as well as get them to undo what they say is retaliation against the lawsuit.

In the deposition process, it came out that the rent increase is part of Harmony Communities’ business practice to bring the property up to market rates, said Thompson. For a resident who was paying $395 a month for a site, they are now paying $690, not including water and trash, which at one time was included in the price to keep a home at the park.

At the time the lawsuit was filed, shortly after Harmony Communities had purchased the property, rent had increased 32%. Before the most recent increase it was at 72% bump. After adding new utility fees that had been parceled out and another increase, in some cases rent had climbed over 100% since 2019.

RE: Santa Rosa, California

Mon, Jan 16, 2023 – In a December letter, then-chief assistant city attorney Jeff Berk stated that mobile home park residents with rent increases scheduled for Jan. 1 would still be subject to the previous law. That’s because the new ordinance did not go into effect until Jan. 6, 30 days after the City Council’s vote.

That means that hundreds of residents at five of Santa Rosa’s 16 rent controlled mobile home parks – Carriage Court, Coddingtown, Country, Roseland and Wayside Gardens – saw their rent rise by 5.7% instead of the 3.99% increase others will get this year.

RE: Santa Rosa, California

Wed, Dec 7, 2022 – Santa Rosa mobile home residents will enjoy the strongest rent control protections in Sonoma County starting next year.

At its Tuesday night meeting, the City Council voted 6-0-1 to approve an update to its mobile home rent ordinance further restricting rent increases. Vice Mayor Eddie Alvarez was absent.

Since the last change to the law in 2004, in the 16 of Santa’s Rosa’s 19 mobile home parks with rent control, rent increases were set using 100% of the San Francisco area CPI with a 6% cap. Now, they will be limited to 70% of the CPI with a 4% cap.

The new ordinance will go into effect 30 days after Tuesday’s vote which is Fri, Jan 6, 2023.

Wed, Nov 30, 2022 – Santa Rosa mobile home park residents will get more peace of mind when it comes to rent increases under a new plan tentatively approved by the City Council late Tuesday.

Currently, 16 of Santa Rosa’s 19 mobile home parks with rent control set yearly increases based on 100% of the CPI with a 6% cap, like most other Sonoma County jurisdictions.

If the new amendment holds, rent increases will be tied to 70% of the CPI with a 4% cap. It would also allow park owners to increase rent by 10% for in-place transfers, which occur when a mobile home is sold to a new buyer.
